Have you watched PBS and the programs they broadcast to promote the philosophy of naturalism dubbed Darwinism? These programs claim that Africa is the “cradle of humanity” and that humanity began as some extinct ape. Many claim that some how life accidently began with chemicals in a primordial soup and somehow progressed to modern man. The producers of Creation Moments have exposed these false claims for what they are—FALSE! UNTRUE! “RIDICULOUS” would be another descriptive word quite appropriate for such a claim.
In previous Creation Moments, discussed the ideas evolutionists have about interbreeding between emerging modern humans, migrating out of Africa, and Neanderthal people. We have commented that we do not accept the evolutionary paradigm that labels Neanderthals as separate from, or even inferior to, modern humans. We suggest that they were all human, and hence all descended from Adam.
Evolutionists postulate another group of sub-humans, called Denisovans. These, they believe, lived in East Asia and Oceania. A recent evolutionary study, published in the journal Cell, suggests that Denisovens interbred with migrating Homo Sapiens on two occasions, giving rise to certain genetic features of East Asians, and of Oceanians, such as Papuans and Australian Aborigines.
Bones of these people were discovered in the Denisova Cave, in the Altai Mountains of Siberia. Scientists have studied mitochondrial DNA (mDNA) from a finger discovered in the cave. These studies have led evolutionists to conclude that there is a distinction between mDNA in modern humans and Denisovans. Nevertheless, they suggest that Aboriginals share 5% of this mDNA with homo sapiens.
When one looks at reproductions of Neanderthals or Denisovans, it is interesting to imagine what you would think if you saw such a person in the street, wearing modern clothes. In fact, given the large variety of human facial features, you would not recognize a Neanderthal or Denisovan as any different from any other human. Once again, this is because there is no significant difference. All three groups were human, and hence all descended from Adam and Eve.
